You will still need a ticket and you will still have a designated place to stand. Safe standing areas will not allow fans to enter and then decise who they stand beside like on the old open terraces.
At the moment we have standing areas at grounds but they are designed to be seating areas. In other words people are standing in front of their seats which unfortunately is dangerous compared to when people are sitting. Making people sit has not worked so why not make these areas safer by bringing in these new arrangements.
I don't see why that ought to be the case though- surely only allowing a certain amount of people into the designated standing area would solve any potential dangers of overcrowding. Why the need to tell someone where to stand?
What I mean is, these safe standing areas have rows and numbers that relate to your ticket. Just like you have an allocated seat now, you will have an allocated standing station on the terrace.
